We are pleased to announce the eleventh meeting on Cell Death, to be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory from Tuesday evening, September 15, until after lunch on Saturday, September 19, 2015. The meeting will cover the field of cell death and apoptosis by specific sessions devoted to the topics listed below.

The format of the meeting will include morning and evening sessions consisting of short talks, limited to approximately 15 minutes, principally on unpublished work. Because the audience will be composed of investigators with rather diverse backgrounds, the session chairs will anchor each session with a 20 minute talk to provide an overview of the specific area. The other submitted abstracts will be presented in poster sessions in the free afternoons. As usual at Cold Spring Harbor Meetings, all abstracts of both poster and platform sessions will be published in an abstract book given to all the participants.

Bcl-2 Family Proteins
Regulated Necrosis
Cell Death in Cancer Biology
Inflammasome and Human Physiology & Disease
Molecular Mechanisms
Cell Death Therapeutics
Metabolic Control of Cell Death
Non-Apoptotic, Non-Necroptotic Cell Death
